Attendees to our conferences come away energized and able to implement ideas and best practices they learned right away.

But don’t take our word for it. Read below to see what actual attendees thought about the conference.

2015_participant_imagesTestimonials from conference evaluations:

The conference, as always, was amazing. I was able to learn new information and techniques as well as meet wonderful like-minded people from across the country.

Workshops and speakers were excellent – presenters were all knowledgeable and mostly very charismatic and compelling. The range of topics that relate to equity provide a wide spectrum of learning experiences – from the mind-changing, 30,000-foot view on issues of race, gender and society – to the nitty-gritty details of how to structure a classroom to accommodate a student with a particular disability.

The entire conference was excellent! As a first-time attendee, I felt nothing like a first-time attendee! TheNAPE team was very welcoming and eager to broaden my scope of knowledge! The workshops were well connected to the work I do and the work my institutions focuses on! I am looking forward to April 2016!

The structure and content was appropriate for educational professionals passionate about creating equitable pathways and spaces for learning.

Great venue – the professional networking was tops!

The awareness of a wide variety of issues will help me be more mindful of demographics that continue to benefit from additional access and visibility in education.

[The conference attendees] are very smart people, so being able to benefit from that, and being in a room with all of that experience and knowledge, when it comes to diversity and equity, is a wonderful experience.

Every session I attended was full of useful information. The presenters were consistently excellent. I left feeling supported in my equity work, something I greatly needed.
